Tasting Notes:
A noticeable step-up from Les Claux with beguiling sweet fruit and excellent balance of fruit extraction with fine structural support and a wonderfully smooth texture. Very forward but better with a few years' ageing.

Critic Reviews:
"Tasted blind. Dark - heady and sweet on the nose. A bit brûlée and with lots of ripe fruit. An interesting wine with savour. Sappy and appetising. Very smooth-textured. Cool finish."17.5/20 (Jancis Robinson MW)

'Black fruits, charcoal, roasted herbs and pepper all reluctantly emerge from the glass, and it's structured, medium to full-bodied, and concentrated. Tight and closed, it needs 3-4 years of cellaring, yet has tons of potential. 93/100 (Jeb Dunnock)
